Function of Ling'en Hall
Lingen Hall (the Hall of Eminent Favor), also called offerings hall, used to be the place to keep memorial tablets inscribed with the names of deceased emperors. Sacrificial ceremonies were held here too.

Architecture of Ling'en Hall
The hall is supported by 60 pillars made of nanmu (phoebe nanmu). The 32 inside the hall are over 12 meters high and the four in the innermost are the biggest, each being 14.3 meters high and 1.17 meters in diameter, so big that two men can not put their arms around it. They were make out of single tree trunks, rarely seen in the world. Nothing was painted inside the hall to maintain its natural colour. The hall is the largest and the most magnificent building of nanmu wood that still exists in China.

  • Nanmu, a kind of valuable timber, was cut in southwest China and carried all the way to Beijing.
